1. Location

Shillong is situated far away in the north east. Although Shillong has a good network of the roadways, it lacks the facility of railways and the airways. The nearest airport is 30 kms away from the city and that too offers limited number of flights. This means long and tiring travelling hours. A tired couple needs rest before the shoot and hence it needs a proper planned schedule so to avoid these trivial issues as they can be proved spoilers later on.

2. No Restaurants Nearby

The areas with a scenic beauty are natural and situated away from the approach of the humans which means the restaurants and all the other facilities are not around for the couples once they are getting their pre wedding shoot done. Hunger is to be silenced so that it will not hinder the shoot and wastes the time of the couple as well as the photographer because hunger means going back far away from the shooting location.

3. No Changing Room

Shillong is a hill station and an open area for the pre wedding shoot that means there is no allotment of a changing room. Generally, beautiful locations are situated in wild and a bit far away from the hotels or restaurants and it causes the unavailability of the changing room.
